Krysten Ritter: I've Never Seen James Van Der Beek's Dawson's Creek

James Van Der Beek's breakout role on "Dawson's Creek" is a recurring punch line on his new show, "Don't Trust the B---- in Apt 23," but series star Krysten Ritter has never laid eyes on her co-star's teen series.


"I'm the only person in the entire world who has never see 'Dawson's Creek,'" the actress told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Monday's Access Hollywood Live.

"You didn't have a little crush on the Beek?" Billy asked, while Kit added, "You didn't' want to crawl through his window like Joey?"


"Those references are going right over my head, nothing!" she explained. "I was like 15 when that show was on. I was busy getting into my own trouble."

The 30-year-old actress might be one of TV's nastiest characters now (with a good heart buried somewhere in there!), but growing up, Krysten had to contend with a few B's of her own along the way.


"I was totally picked on, but look at me now! I was definitely picked on by boys and girls. I was really lanky and skinny and the boys would say, 'Turn sideways and stick out your tongue, you look like a zipper,'" she recalled. "I had big feet, I had really skinny ankles... Yeah it was pretty rough."


The actress, who hails from Shickshinny, Pennsylvania, explained that her parents didn't want her to pursue acting and had different plans for her career.

"My parents actually wanted me to join the service," Krysten told Billy and Kit.

HBO's 'Game Of Thrones' On Track To Be Crowned Most Pirated Show Of 2012


Brace yourselves, HBO. The pirates are coming.

With its popularity swelling and no easy way to watch for viewers without cable, HBO’s hit series “Game of Thrones” is inspiring massive levels of piracy, according to numbers from the BitTorrent-tracking and analysis firm Big Champagne. By the firm’s rough estimate, the second season of the show has been downloaded more than 25 million times from public torrent trackers since it began in early April, and its piracy hit a new peak following April 30th’s episode, with more than 2.5 million downloads in a day.

“It certainly appears to be the most pirated show of the year,” says John Robinson, a senior media analyst with Big Champagne. He says it’s too early to measure definitively, but the company’s data so far as well as the popularity rankings on download site the Pirate Bay point to “Game of Thrones” as filesharers’ favorite show of 2012. “The fact that it’s consistently at the top of the Pirate Bay’s top one hundred TV show chart seems like a pretty in-your-face leading indicator of the huge volume at which this is being shared.”

World-renowned hair stylist and fashion icon Vidal Sassoon has died.

According to reports, Sassoon passed away today from an unspecified illness at his home on Mulholland Drive in Hollywood. His family was by his side.

Vidal is credited with creating the famous haircut called the "bob"

Vidal was reportedly diagnosed with leukemia in 2009. It's unclear what role the cancer played in his death.

The hair icon was married four times -- most recently to Rhonda Sassoon in 1992, who stayed with him until his death. He is also survived by three children. Vidal was 84.

Marion Cotillard Confirms She Is Not Talia Al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises


Why is she dressed like this if Marion Cotillard isn't playing Talia al Ghul?While it has long been known that Marion Cotillard is playing a character named Miranda Tate in The Dark Knight Rises, it is still heavily speculated to this day that she is actually playing Talia al Ghul, the vengeful daughter of Liam Neeson's Ra's Al Ghul (confirmed to have a cameo in this sequel).

While she still can't say much about her part in the story arc of this trilogy ending climax, Marion Cotillard has now gone on record, confirming that she is not playing Talia al Ghul.

"It was a very, very small role. [I play a business woman who] is fascinated by Wayne Enterprises. They go through difficulties, and she wants to help provide the world clean energies. She's a good guy."

Marion Cotillard then went onto note that she plays a good guy all the way through the film, never switching alliances. As evident by the latest trailer, Miranda Tate and Bruce Wayne will share an intimate moment or two. It is also possible that she is lying about not being Talia Al Ghul. Why else is she dressed in that short robe? It's surely not the attire of a business woman, now is it?

The Dark Knight Rises comes to theaters July 20th, 2012 and stars Liam Neeson, Tom Hardy, Christian Bale, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anne Hathaway, Gary Oldman, Aidan Gillen, Marion Cotillard. The film is directed by Christopher Nolan.

Cops shut down Drake's concert early + jsyk he's not dating Rashida Jones




Drake's Club Paradise closed a little early Tuesday night during his Irvine, California, stop after officials asked the Young Money standout to cut his set short.

Drizzy complied, then took to Twitter to show his love to concertgoers: "Police made me cut the show short but I love you all for rocking with me Irvine," Drake tweeted early Wednesday morning.

Before the show, he urged ticketholders via Twitter to arrive early to the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre. With a jam-packed bill that included J. Cole, 2 Chainz, French Montana, Waka Flocka Flame and Meek Mill, Drizzy warned fans that they wouldn't want to miss any of it. Apparently, Drake and his tourmates had too much planned, and Irvine police had to shut down the show early.

A representative from the Irvine Police Department confirmed to MTV News that they had to wrap it up at approximately 11:45 p.m., forcing the MC to cut about three songs from his set. There were no incidents at the event, but because of the amphitheater's close proximity to several residential areas, police asked Drake to end his show after he went past his scheduled stop time.  The "Marvins Room" MC complied.

FX Developing Female Serial Killer Drama



Why should Stephenie Meyer, Suzanne Collins and J.K. Rowling get to be the only female authors whose ongoing series of novels get re-imagined for the bigger arenas of film and television? FX has answered that rhetorical question by commencing development on a new original drama adapted from writer Chelsea Cain's "Heartsick" novels.

Deadline has reported that "Magic City" (and, weirdly, "Hope & Faith) Executive Producer Geyer Kosinski is helping bring Cain's books to the small screen. For those uninitiated, "Heartsick" focuses on the twisted relationship between serial murderess Gretchen Lowell and pill-popping detective Archie Sheridan, whom she once kidnapped and tortured.

I'm personally excited for this. I loved the first two books. Michelle Pfeiffer was whom I pictured for Gretchen when I read the books- who would you cast as the serial killer, ONTD?

Ron MacLean pulls a Don Cherry, compares hockey players to 9/11 first responders

Commentator Ron MacLean is drawing controversy for comparing the hockey players in the New York Rangers, Washington Capitals playoff series to the firefighters and police officers who responded to the 9/11 disaster.

Viewers of "Hockey Night In Canada" are no stranger to odd, sometimes controversial comments. But most of the time they come from long-time hockey commentator Don Cherry and not the straight-laced, mild-mannered Ron MacLean.

The offending gaffe came during MacLean's introduction to Game 6, which began with a rambling statement about New York and Washington's shared 9/11 history.

"It's crazy to compare what the emergency responders did during that time, but a spirit has to start somewhere," he said.

"You can't help but be struck by the players and the way they've played these games. They are like police officers, they are like firefighters. You can't fight fire with ego," he continued.

Needless to say, MacLean didn't get a free pass with many on Twitter getting their jabs in.

"Geez Ron MacLean, who knew skating after a black rubber object was as important as saving lives on 9/11," posted twitter user @habs_junkie.

Twitter user @wzzntzz put it more succinctly. "he smoke a Don Cherry tie?"

After working with her on a recent multi-episode arc on NBC's "Parks and Recreation," Paul Rudd is planning to again re-team with Amy Poehler for a new comedy, titled They Came Together. Variety has the news, saying that both actors will be working alongside their Wet Hot American Summer director, David Wain.

The script, written by Wain and Michael Showalter, is said to be be a parody of the romantic comedy genre. Rudd stars as Joel, a corporate businessman whose company is threatening to shut down the small store run by Poehler's Molly. A relationship follows, mocking the conventions of the standard romcom.

Bristol Palin Rips Obama. Gay Marriage is WRONG ... and So Is 'Glee'



"Glee" is bad for America ... so says Bristol Palin ... who just took a shot at the show during an anti-gay marriage blog entry aimed at Barack Obama.

Palin makes it clear -- she believes Obama is a weak, pathetic, stupid man for allowing his daughters to influence his opinion on gay marriage.

In her blog entry, Palin writes, "While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads.  In this case, it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage."

The 21-year-old unwed mother continues, "As great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home.  Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview."

"I guess we can be glad that Malia and Sasha aren’t younger, or perhaps today’s press conference might have been about appointing Dora the Explorer as Attorney General because of her success in stopping Swiper the Fox."

Then comes the shot at "Glee" ... as Palin continues, "Sometimes dads should lead their family in the right ways of thinking.  In this case, it would’ve been nice if the President would’ve been an actual leader and helped shape their thoughts instead of merely reflecting what many teenagers think after one too many episodes of Glee."

"This is biggest concert we've ever put together, even bigger than Michael Jackson's concert in 1993," enthuses Neil Thompson, deputy managing director of BEC Tero Entertainment. "It's taking three 747s and 20 sea containers to bring in all the production, staging, lighting, sound and video equipment."

The stadium grounds are already being prepared and enhanced to support the massive, intricate concert set, which features a 5-storey, movable 3D castle, 300 speaker sets, the singer's 150 crew and dancers as well as 50,000 fans.

Rihanna blocked Chris Brown on twitter after dissing her on a track



Chris Brown has released a freestyle version of Kanye West's latest track online.

The singer has put his own spin on the rapper's recent song 'Theraflu' (recently renamed 'Way Too Cold' and then just 'Cold') and has seemingly upset ex-girlfriend Rihanna in the process.


Lyrics in the track include: "Don't f**k with my old bitch it's like a bad fur/ Every industry n***a done had her/ Shook the tree like a pumpkin just to smash her/ Bitch is breaking codes, but I'm the password."

After Brown tweeted the link, Rihanna unfollowed (blocked*) the woman beater and commented: "Aw, poor dat #neaux1currr."

It was recently reported that the pair were planning to reunite on stage for a live performance, and the pair were collaborating on remixes of each other's tracks back in February.

The controversial duets came three years after the end of Brown and Rihanna's relationship, after he physically assaulted her on the night of the Grammy awards in 2009.

John Cena files for divorce, expected to get nasty


WWE star John Cena has filed for a divorce from his wife Liz Huberdeau. The Miami Herald reports that Cena's wife has has hired powerful Miami attorney Raymond Rafool., who represented Linda Bollea in her divorce from Hulk Hogan. "Although it is indeed unfortunate that John Cena decided to divorce his high school sweetheart Liz Cena; particularly, after they have come so far in their lives and in his career together, Liz will and really has no choice but to pursue all of her rights and entitlements," Rafool said.

"Although Mr. Cena pushes a prenuptial agreement and that the parties have only been married for approximately three years, Liz Cena has always supported John Cena, even when no one else did, and stood behind him and pushed him forward to achieve their goals for the last 14 years. Sadly, divorce is not the way Liz thought her perfect love story would end." Read more on the story at Blogs.herald.com/scene_in_the_tropics/2012/05/wwe-superstar-jon-cena-files-for-divorce-wife-hires-miami-attorney.html.

Powell's POV: The story also includes a quote that claims the divorce will "dwarf the Hogan divorce nastiness." Cena is reportedly worth $18 million. He claimed the marriage is "irretrevably broken." If Cena was seriously considering the idea of taking time off, this could explain why.

Simon Cowell produces both AGT and X Factor, but that didn't stop Stern from mouthing off: "She'll stand there with a lollipop…(saying) 'Can I get a perfume deal out of this?' I don't think you'll be getting opinions from her. But I'll tune in to see what kind of a train wreck she is."

Would he have agreed to judge AGT if Spears and Jennifer Lopez were on the panel? "Absolutely not. To sit there with JLo and Britney would be like a ventriloquist with two dummies; I'd have to prop them up."

50 Shades Author to Write a Young Adult Novel

'Fifty Shades' author E L James has finished two new novels



The erotic Fifty Shades trilogy may be reviled and banned by some, but with all three books topping the best-sellers list, the phenomenon is far from fading any time soon. E L James, the raunchy mind behind the bondage saga, has added fuel to the fire by telling USA Today that she has two more novels hidden away. She says one is another erotic novel — no mention whether it revisits kink master Christian Grey and dewy college student Anastasia Steele — and the other is a paranormal young adult novel. James considers Fifty Shades a hard act to follow. ”I’ve got several more good ideas but how do you follow this?” she says. “I’ve set the bar quite high in terms of storytelling.”

Should her next erotic novel return to the Fifty Shades world? Will her YA novel follow the Twilight vein?

The Trouble With Prince Charming or He Who Trespassed Against Us

By Roxane Gay
We all know the common fairy tale. There’s a man and a woman—rarely, if ever, do we see stories about a woman and a woman or a man and a man—who must overcome some obstacle to reach happily ever after. There is always a happily ever after.

I enjoy fairy tales because I need to believe, despite my cynicism, that there is a happy ending for everyone, for me. The older I get, though, the more I realize how fairy tales demand a great deal from the woman. The man in most fairy tales, Prince Charming in all his iterations, really isn’t that interesting. In most fairy tales, he is blandly attractive and rarely seems to demonstrate much personality, taste, or intelligence. We’re supposed to believe this is totally fine because he is Prince Charming. His charm is supposed to be enough.

The Disney versions of fairy tales, the ones with which we are probably most familiar, don’t offer much in the way of Prince Charming. In The Little Mermaid, Prince Eric has a great woman right in front of him but is so obsessed with this pretty voice he once heard he can’t appreciate what he has. In his ignorance, he nearly lets the right one go. In Snow White, the prince doesn’t even find Snow White until she is already dead; he is so lacking in imagination he simply falls in love with a corpse. In Rapunzel, the prince lacks the ambition to find a better way for Rapunzel to escape her tower like, I don’t know, building a ladder. Belle is given away by her father in Beauty and the Beast, to the Beast himself, and then must endure the attentions of a man who essentially views her as chattel. Only through sacrificing herself, and loving a beast of a man can she finally learn that he is, in fact, a handsome prince.

The thing about fairy tales is that the princess finds her prince, but there’s generally a price to pay. A compromise of some kind is required for happily ever after. The woman in the fairy tale is generally the one who pays the price, which is such a rotten deal. This seems to be the nature of sacrifice in most matters.

Look at Twilight. The four books of the series are about vampires and werewolves and the sweeping love story between Bella, a young girl and Edward, an old vampire. Really, though, the Twilight series is a new kind of fairy tale. Is there anything particularly compelling about Edward Cullen? He sparkles. He’s theoretically attractive but only seems to have one interest: loving Bella and controlling every decision she makes. We’re supposed to believe his obsessive control and devotion are somehow appealing. We’re supposed to believe he is Prince Charming, albeit flawed because he needs to drink blood to survive. Accepting Edward’s controlling obsession and vampirism is the compromise required of Bella. Eventually, becoming a vampire, becoming undead, is the price Bella must pay for her happily ever after. We’re supposed to believe she’s fine with that. We’re supposed to believe Edward is worth that sacrifice.

It really is insulting, what we are supposed to believe about love and happiness; but there’s no denying that there is something satisfying about fairy tales, about the fantasy of the perfect hero, the Prince Charming who offers a woman a perfect life no matter the price she must pay.

***

Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, and Fifty Shades Freed by E.L. James, are a modern fairy tale with a dark, erotic twist. The trilogy began as fan fiction—fiction written by fans of an original series without actually being a part of it—inspired by Twilight. While grounded in the fairy tale tradition and rising out of fan fiction, Fifty Shades of Grey is also one of the few books that could be categorized as erotica and that has been embraced by the mainstream, if you forget, of course, Anne Rice’s The Sleeping Beauty trilogy.

Fan fiction and erotica are not new but there is something about Fifty Shades of Grey that has piqued the popular imagination. The books are erotic, amusing in their absurdity, and disturbing in their cultural implications about just how much trouble Prince Charming can be.

JWoww: "Bristol should keep her uneducated, ignorant mouth shut"


Jenni "JWoww" Farley has never been shy about voicing her opinions, as Bristol Palin learned firsthand Thursday.

After Palin, 21, wrote a heated blog post about President Barack Obama's recent support of same-sex marriage, Farley, 26, dissed the politician's daughter via Twitter.

"Bristol should keep her uneducated, ignorant mouth shut. If you're living in the past you wouldn't have a kid without marriage. Hypocrite. It's 2012!" Farley wrote. "My best friend will get married one day and not just have civil union with his man. Stop hating people."


During his interview with ABC News' Robin Roberts, Obama explained how his daughters Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10, inspired him to think more seriously about the topic of same-sex marriage.

"Malia and Sasha, they have friends whose parents are same-sex couples," Obama said. "There have been times where Michelle and I have been sitting around the dinner table and we're talking about their friends and their parents and Malia and Sasha, it wouldn't dawn on them that somehow their friends' parents would be treated differently. It doesn't make sense to them, and frankly, that's the kind of thing that prompts a change in perspective."

In her blog post, Palin griped that Obama, 50, "made a massive change in a policy position that could affect the entire nation after consulting with his teenage daughters."

Palin argued that "in general, kids do better growing up in a mother/father home" and said that "in this case, it would've been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that's not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage."

The single mom continued: "I guess we can be glad that Malia and Sasha aren't younger, or perhaps today's press conference might have been about appointing Dora the Explorer as Attorney General because of her success in stopping Swiper the Fox."

"Sometimes dads should lead their family in the right ways of thinking. In this case, it would've been nice if the President would've been an actual leader and helped shape their thoughts instead of merely reflecting what many teenagers think after one too many episodes of Glee."

I can't believe I just made a post involving someone from Jersey Shore.

British comedian Russell Brand to host MTV movie awards show



British comedian Russell Brand will host this year’s MTV Movie Awards — and vows the show will be a blockbuster.

The irreverent funnyman — and ex-hubby of songstress Katy Perry — said the celebrity-studded June 3 show will be “more impressive than ‘The Avengers,’” the record-breaking movie that generated $207 million in ticket sales during its opening weekend in the U.S. and Canada.

“With his amazing ability to span the full spectrum of comedy from the most high to low brow, Russell’s smart, unpredictable wit uniquely connects him to our audience,” MTV President Stephen Friedman said.

The annual awards are being held in Los Angeles. Past hosts have included Jimmy Fallon, Eddie Murphy and Will Smith.

“The Hunger Games” and “Bridesmaids” top the list of MTV movie contenders with eight nominations each.

Brand will be presenting golden popcorn statuettes to the winners alongside stars such as Charlize Theron, Mila Kunis and Mark Wahlberg.

Adam Scott on the Knope 2012 Campaign, What Ron Swanson Wears During Sex, and why Boston's Don't Look Back is Totally Kick Ass


There's no shortage of Adam Scott love around these parts, and this as season four of Parks and Recreation concludes, it seemed appropriate to check in with the star who plays Ben Wyatt, for his expert analysis on the season's big storyline: the Knope 2012 election campaign. As Leslie's campaign manager, boyfriend, right hand, confidant, and media consultant, Scott's character wore many hats this seasons. While everyone else was busy learning the intricacies of small-town politics, Wyatt brought particular insights from his days spent as a young mayor that were valuable to her platform and at times, her public image. For Scott, Parks and Recreation is his now his longest standing gig and his performance continues to feel honest and charming, where sappy PDA moments are constantly mixed with straight-man humor and logical thinking. GQ spoke with Scott about his role in the Knope 2012 campaign, getting drunk with Amy Poehler, what Ron Swanson wears during sex, and why Boston's Don't Look Back kicks ass.

Logan Hardy-Green lines up post-Prometheus roles

ONTD’s next boyfriend Logan Marshall-Green’s career is picking up steam in the wake of his role in the upcoming film Prometheus.



The actor's turn as playwright Tennessee Williams will follow his appearance in Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" and "Black Dog, White Dog" with Olivia Wilde and James Franco.
Logan Marshall Green is joining the cast of Lonely Hunter, a film exploring the life of Southern writer Carson McCullers. Marshall Green is set to play Tennessee Williams opposite Jena Malone’s McCullers.

Writer-director-producer Deborah Kampmeier and producer Troy Johanson of Full Moon Films made the casting announcement Tuesday. Described as “McCullers’ best friend and longtime confidant,” Williams is one of the important figures in the author’s life along with her protégé Truman Capote and roommate Gypsy Rose Lee.

Since making appearances in Across the Universe and Brooklyn’s Finest, Marshall Green’s career has grown quickly. His next major role will be as a member of the ensemble cast for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, and he is currently shooting Black Dog, White Dog with Olivia Wilde and James Franco.




Making exact duplicates of hot people is one of the many small ways God reminds us that he loves us.

‘Avengers’: Mark Ruffalo says the Hulk has ‘found his family’


This story contains spoilers about “The Avengers” and previously released Marvel films.

When word got out in 2010 that Mark Ruffalo had been cast as Bruce Banner and his big, green alter ego the Hulk in “The Avengers,” many fans of the franchise were furious. They took to the message boards, touting the merits of Edward Norton’s performance in 2008′s “The Incredible Hulk” and decrying the decision to cast a different actor in “The Avengers,” which would finally unite Marvel’s superheroes, including Captain America, Iron Man and Thor.

Ruffalo — best known for off-the-beaten-path movies such as “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and 2010′s critical darling “The Kids Are All Right” — had been unsure of his decision to accept the role in the action-packed flick. But he said the fan outrage was exactly the motivation he needed.

Meet the Author behind "Suri's Burn Book"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Scandale! The author of the caustic, hilarious exposé on the lives of Hollywood's golden babies — Suri's Burn Book — is a literary fraud on the level of JT LeRoy. Okay, we kid — we didn't really think Katie Holmes' mini-me was penning the site on her tiny iPad from her tiny private plane seat. But, we are (pleasantly) shocked to discover that the (ghost?) writer behind the blog is none other than D.C.'s own Allie Hagan, a 25-year-old employee of a District consulting firm. We should have known that Suri's quick wit and biting sarcasm came from a fellow Washingtonian.

'Private Practice's' Shonda Rhimes: Season Finale Will Leave Some Questions Unanswered

Photobucket

The prolific showrunner tells THR that she approached the final Season 5 episode as a season finale and not a series finale.

Private Practice showrunner Shonda Rhimes is optimistic that the ABC medical drama will return for a sixth installment and approached writing the final episode of the Kate Walsh starrer's fifth year as a season finale instead of a series finale.

After losing its cushy post-Grey's Anatomy time slot earlier this season and relocating to Tuesdays to make way for Rhimes' Scandal, the drama needed a week to gain its footing but has performed well in its new home, following Dancing With the Stars. And like everything else on ABC's lineup, is awaiting news about its future, with a decision likely to come this week.

Chris Hemsworth cast in new project Shadow Runners

Chris Hemsworth will soon be putting down the hammer (just for a little while, though) as he's been recruited for the military thriller, "Shadow Runners," according to Deadline.

"Shadow Runners" follows a former Navy SEAL who tries to repair a rift with an old comrade in arms as he leads a team of elite international operatives on a mission against a mysterious enemy.

Chris Cantwell and Chris Rogers have been hired to write the screenplay, which is based on a pitch by "Drive" scribe Hossein Amini that was inspired by an incident in which a group of Israeli operatives infiltrated a Dubai hotel to kill a Hamas leader … only to see the rendezvous captured on surveillance cameras.

No start date has been announced on the project, though it will have to be juggled with Hemsworth's commitment to the "Thor" sequel, which will be directed by "Game of Thrones" director Alan Taylor and is set to hit theaters on Nov. 15, 2013.

Chris Hemsworth, who's currently shooting Ron Howard's "Rush," has officially claimed 2012 as his own as he can currently be seen in theaters in both "The Cabin in the Woods" and "The Avengers" and has "Snow White and the Huntsman" opening on June 1. Oh, and bonus: the oft-delayed "Red Dawn" will finally hit theaters on Nov. 21, just in time to ruin Thanksgiving with an invasion from North Korea (yeah, you knew it wasn't Russians this time, right?).

Better Dropped Than Forced Into Stereotypical Roles



Yvette Nicole Brown got into the entertainment business to make people happy. More than getting famous (“it seems like a whole lot of work!”) or getting rich (“I’m happy living a small life,” she has said, though there really is nothing small about doing good work), her mission has always been to “uplift everyone,” regardless of gender, race, or physical type. Yet in an industry as focused on “types” as Hollywood, Brown has surely come up against stereotyping and attempted pigeonholing. What makes her such a unique, respectable artist, though, is her refusal to settle for what anyone else wanted her to be.

“Everybody kind of fits in a box, and I get it. Sometimes you have to start in the stereotype of this industry and then get to branch out as you’ve proven your ability to be able to do it,” Brown, our latest Inspirational Woman in the Entertainment Industry, admitted. “I’ve been very careful about what I’ve chosen, but that being said, there’s not a lot of roles that allow portrayals of things to be positive."

Adele Set for NBC Special With Matt Lauer



Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy


After months of lying low following her fall throat surgery, Adele is running headfirst into the spotlight with her own hour-long NBC special, to air next month. The feature, "Adele Live in London with Matt Lauer," will feature an exclusive interview and several performances from her "Adele Live At The Royal Albert Hall" DVD.

NBC has released a preview of the interview (above), which has the British star dishing on celebrity pals, joking about the four pairs of Spanx she wore to the Grammys, discussing the crazy rumors that surround her on a daily basis, and reliving the time she walked through "tourist central" in London, terrified that someone would recognize her. She was wearing color and pajamas -- both definite don't's for the black-wearing superstar -- so naturally, no one knew who she was.

One of the biggest stars in the world, notoriously media-shy Adele has not only won eight Grammy Awards, but her latest album, 2011's "21," has sold 8,986,000 copies to date according to Nielsen SoundScan. The sophomore set has also spent 63 weeks on the Billboard 200, with 23 weeks at No. 1.

The NBC special will premiere on June 5 at 8 p.m. ET.

Owl City’s “Take It All Away” Off ‘Shooting Star’ EP: Idolator Premiere

1. Take It All Away


It’s only been 11 months since the release of Owl City‘s last album, All Things Bright And Beautiful, but the prolific Adam Young has been hard at work in the meantime, crafting his upcoming LP (due out this summer). And before that, his Shooting Star EP will be made available this coming Tuesday (May 15).

As an appetizer, we’re premiering Owl City’s new song “Take It All Way” off the EP. It’s a slow-burning jam that features building chords atop a boom-clap beat, a sunny melody and Young’s soaring tenor on the chorus. Get your first listen of the track below!

For his new material, one-man band Owl City did something unusual for him: he turned to other writers and producers to collaborate with.

“Over the past several years become fascinated with trying to capture magic in a jar through simple, concise pop songs,” Young says. “I saw it as a great challenge to try to come up with catchy, unique, and memorable songs because it was a new method of songwriting I’d never approached before. I believe artists should never look back or repeat themselves and this was a new frontier for me.”

This new frontier involved working on his upcoming LP with Reliant K frontman Matt Thiessen ("Dressin' Up"), Grammy-winning producers Stargate ("What's My Name", "Firework", "Only Girl", "Irreplaceable") and the team of Josh Crosby, Nate Campany, and Emily Wright.

“I made my first two records on my own without any outside help and learned that it’s easy to overthink what you do by allowing yourself to become too emotionally invested in what you’re doing,” Young says. “Initially, l was anxious about letting other people the solo endeavor l’d always played close to the chest, but it was exhilarating not having 100 percent control over what happened. In the end for me, it’s all about trying new things as an artist.”

As for “Take It All Away”, the song was co-produced by Adam and KoOol Kojack, and he co-wrote it with Allan P. Grigg, Nate Campany and Emily Wright.

New film 'Beasts of The Southern Wild' gets early Oscar buzz



Movies such as Think Like A Man get a lot of media buzz from blogs or alternative media. I like movies such as Think Like A Man, but I also like independent films that take a risk to bring us stories not often seen. Without a big name producer like Tyler Perry or Oprah Winfrey, films like Precious would just go unnoticed. Pariah is one of those films which we featured on MrsGrapevine.com that didn’t receive the press it deserved. In order to have more diversity in black films, we have to support these independent films. With that said, I want to present this new film to you, Beasts of the Southern Wild, featuring new comer, Quvenzhané Wallis. Beasts of the Southern Wild  is already generating an Oscar buzz and is set to hit theaters June 27th. Not to mention, it was one of the crowd favorites at the Sundance Film Festival and will be featured at Cannes.

"Faced with her father’s fading health and environmental changes that release an army of prehistoric creatures called aurochs, six-year-old Hushpuppy leaves her Delta-community home in search of her mother." {via Black Thespian}

It’s hard to explain what the movie is about, so you will need to watch the trailer. The story takes place in the bayou around the time of a hurricane of biblical proportions kind of like Katrina. The film features a little heroine named Hushpuppy, who finds life in almost everything she sees, even in the midst of tragedy. It’s a message of hope through the eyes of a kid who stills sees the magic in life, even while the beasts of her life follow her around.

So, enjoy 16 ounces of our finest dark roast.’ I told that story not too long ago, and somebody called out from the back of the audience, ‘Did you try the coffee?’ I said, ‘No, it smelled great but I never tried it.’ He yelled back at me, ‘You should try the coffee!’ I asked, ‘Why I should try it?’ ‘Because I mailed it to you!’ You can never predict what will happen at a PostSecret show.”

Shelley Hennig's interview with playboy (don't get your hopes up it's just text)



Femme on Fire: Shelley Hennig
by MICHAEL J. LOCKHART

For most audiences, this week’s woman to watch won you over years ago as the crowned victor of both Miss Louisiana Teen USA and Miss Teen USA. Since then, this Destrehan, LA native has gone from attending the ultra-prestigious New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts to landing the role of Stephanie Johnson on one of the world’s lon gest-running television shows, Days of Our Lives, where she was nominated for a Daytime Emmy as an Outstanding Younger Actress.

Currently finishing up her first season on CW’s cult supernatural show The Secret Circle, Shelley Hennig stars as Diana Meade, a young witch discovering the limits of her powers alongside her coven circle while the world outside becomes increasingly hell-bent on destroying them.

Shelley took a break from practicing for her first improv comedy show to speak with us about her new show, the challenges of wearing a crown and how to cause a ruckus at Guantanamo Bay.

Jim Parsons talks hitting the stage for 'Harvey'



As fans prepare to watch tonight’s finale of The Big Bang Theory, Jim Parsons is already knee deep in his next role — Elwood P. Dowd in Roundabout Theatre Company’s upcoming Harvey.

Ahead of tonight’s season ender, Parsons opened up about his hiatus project, which gives him a chance to play a character so unlike the socially challenged Sheldon.

“What’s so nice is the crucial divide between the two characters,” he says. “I hadn’t thought about this really deeply until you asked me, and now that I’m saying it, that is probably what I’m enjoying as much as anything, getting into the skin of this guy…who so desperately wants to hear what you have to say and make a conversation out of it — as opposed to the other nine months of the year when I play someone who does everything to stop that from happening.”
